Patradoot or The Messenger 11/Many

Patradoot or The Messenger11 /Many

English version by
Ravindra K Kapoor

Forgetting my sufferings for a while, dear,
Give some consolation,  to these poor farmers,
That you would convey their concern, to rain God,
For showering its rain,  on their burning earth.

For centuries, every one has played,
With the fate of these poor farmers,
By wiping some of their tears, dear
Give some relief to my sufferings, as well

Protected as per Poetry Soup’s copy write protections 

In order to protect the publication of Patradoot or 
The messenger in Hindi and English, I am 
discontinuing the Hindi Transliteration of Patradoot 
from this part to protect the original work of my father
late Dr Amar Nath Kapoor. From now onwards 
only English version of the Patradoot would be
placed as usual.

If any reader who is not a member of Poetry soup
has any question or queries they can 
send me an email on-

Patradoot in Hindi written by my father late
Dr. Amar Nath Kapoor in 1932, when he was imprisoned
by the British, as he was fighting for India's freedom 
under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi.
